I am currently visiting my Dad in Florida , and I learned an important fact about a basic difference in the winter use of salt by region. Down here in the winter we put salt on the rim of our glass. We don’t waste it on the side walk, steps, or road. Also when we mix water and alcohol we don’t use it to remove ice from our windshield, but instead may add ice to the mix. ;0)
Hope y’all stay safe and warm. If you need a brake come on down, and salt the rim of your glass!
